Martian researcher Louis Read claims to have spotted what could be an "interstellar mother ship" moving towards Jupiter's moon Europa, the Daily Mail reported.

The structure was captured using a Canon 650D camera with a 7D-300 millimeter telescopic lens that was mounted on a tripod in a residential backyard just last week, according to The Sun.

"Jupiter has long been shrouded in mystery along with its moon and particularly that of Europa," said Tyler, a UFO researcher from SecureTeam10 who does not disclose his full name. "There has been a lot of scientific talk about alien life likely existing in the vast oceans that currently exists under its icy surface."

The image, which shows Jupiter glowing on the left side, beside the supposed spacecraft, shows the object coming very close to Europa, with Tyler noting that no event like this has ever taken place in our solar system until now.

"We definitely have a reflective UFO up there caught on camera," Tyler said. "One thing for sure is that this definitely doesn't belong there and it wouldn't surprise me in the least if this was some sort of alien craft."

SecureTeam10 are known for their attempts to spot UFOs throughout our solar system and have a YouTube account with a large following, according to Yahoo! News. They state that they believe Europa is high on NASA's list for space exploration.

"Europa will likely be one of NASA's next missions where we send a probe and hopefully it will be a manned mission where we can land on the surface and rill down into the ice," Tyler added.
